Our tomato crop was a bust this year. The grape tomatoes did well for a few weeks, but the crop was felled by a combination of too much rain in the spring and the oppressive July heat that normally does our crop in before August. Even the farmers markets only had a few varieties by early August. We’ve been surviving on some homegrown Arkansas tomatoes and ones shipped in from other parts of the South. Even when tomatoes are sparse we can’t go a full summer without making bruschetta and caprese at least once.
At least its been a banner year for eggplant and clearance beer.
